A one day conference on mental health and the church is being offered in Lower Hutt on the 9th of August, as well as other dates in Auckland and Hamilton. The conference is being offered by Leadership Worx, with one of the speakers being Tricia Hendry, known to many of you from her workshops on grief and trauma at diocesan Team Training Days.
Tricia says: It’s important for churches and Christian organisations to clearly be a part of responding to the increasing levels of anxiety, depression and mental illness within both church congregations and our communities. I have been asked to speak as one of the contributors at this conference, focusing on talking about suicide safely with youth and children, and ways churches can support those bereaved by suicide. You can see what other speakers will present on in the flier.
